JConcepts have introduced the Strike 2 for Team Associated RC8B3. The Strike 2 body samples elements from its famous relative to the Finnisher and Silencer bodies a slightly refined image. The foundation for the design of the “finger” on the front of the pod increases mid-corner steering while a complete wicker section was added to the rear of the vehicle. The initial impression was the silky smooth and balanced aero characteristics which helped culminate into a ROAR National Championship. It all finishes with a drop-fit design which wraps the B3e’s chassis layout like a glove.
The offset of the provenance race provides a compact fit for battery, motor and wiring assemblies which fully appreciate after a complete trim and paint. On the battery side, JConcepts has added a scoop which can be trimmed to release some hot air from the body. In addition, many pre-determined trim-lines have been added to allow extra flow behind the cab and also ream-able holes directly on the front of the side-pods to allow air straight into the body. The heavy channeling on the front windshield and upper cab keeps the Strike 2 aligned at high-speed while the side-pods have multiple hard-edge angles that spill off into 90 degree side-panels. Just behind the cab, a wide stabilizing fin and a sleek up-rising flows from the body like running water. The clear body set includes window templates and decal sheet.
